Experienced FMLA Claims Lawyers in Texas and Nationwide
Aggressive Advocacy to Protect Your Rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act
Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), qualified individuals have the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave every calendar year without a change in their job, benefits or employment status. In addition, all health benefits that would be provided if you were working must continue to be provided while you are on leave. Unfortunately, many employers try to use family or medical leave as a tool to eliminate a position or move an employee to a lower paying position. If your rights under the FMLA have been violated by an employer, we can help.
At Bailey & Galyen, with offices throughout Texas, we offer more than a decade of employment law experience to individuals across the state and the country, including men and women who have been wrongfully denied benefits or rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act. We understand that every situation is different, and we’ll take the time to get to know you and learn the unique aspects of your case, so that we can tailor our counsel to get the outcome you want. We’ll keep you involved and informed at all times, making certain you understand your options, as well as your prospects for success, so that you can make the decision that’s best for you. We’ll strive at all times to answer your calls or emails as soon as possible.
Fighting for Your Rights under the FMLA
We handle all types of claims related to the Family and Medical Leave Act, including:
- Wrongful denial of leave — If you have requested family or medical leave, but your employer has turned down your application, we can help. We’ll make certain your employer has not required unnecessary notification of your leave, has not wrongfully determined you to be ineligible for leave, or has not applied pressure to encourage you not to take leave
- Violations of the FMLA while you are on leave — Most often, this takes the form of failing to continue to provide health care benefits while you are on leave. We’ll ensure that your employer has properly provided you with the necessary information so that you can pay any portion of the health care insurance premiums for which you are responsible.
- Difficulties upon your return to work — This may include delays, the reassignment to a new job, the misclassification of you as a “key employee,” or the refusal or failure of your employer to restore all benefits upon return to work
